City Center

The City Center (CBD) is designed in a grid formation, with myriad alleyways shooting off, often holding the city’s jewels in (sometimes hidden) restaurants, galleries, and bars. The CBD is bounded by Spring Street in the east, Victoria Street to the north, Flinders Street to the South, and Spencer Street to the West. The Federation Square area, opposite the Flinders Street Station, is
